Facebook is joining the fight against terrorism – one woman named Isis at a time.

Isis Anchalee, an engineer based in San Francisco, complained on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon that her Facebook account had been disabled, and suggested it was because of her name.

“Why would you disable my personal account? MY REAL NAME IS ISIS ANCHALEE /facepalm,” she tweeted at Facebook.

One of her Facebook friends noted that their message thread had been marked as spam. “Facebook thinks I’m a terrorist and froze my account,” she replied.

She said she sent Facebook a screenshot of her passport, proving that her birth name was Isis.
